Photo by Doug Martin, Courtesy of Dr. John Farver, Dept. of Geology, Bowling Green State University

This piece of raw graphite comes from the Bogala Mine in Sri Lanka, and it is quite pure. The photo is an accurate representation of its appearance, ie. it has a silvery-gray color rather than being solid black. I had the privilege of handling this sample; it has a 'soapy' feel to it.
